perl6 on Parrot: Revision 8
The Perl 6 Compiler for Parrot is called "rakudo", and it currently lives in the languages/perl6/ directory of the Parrot repository.
To build the perl6 compiler, first "get a working copy of Parrot"<http://www.parrotcode.org/source.html>, then change to the languages/perl6/ subdirectory and type "make perl6". This will build the compiler into a binary called perl6, or perl6.exe, or something appropriate for your platform.
To run a program with perl6, one then issues a command like
$ perl6 hello.pl
or, to run an interactive perl6:
For additional build instructions, you might also have a look at "this PerlMonks post"<http://www.perlmonks.net/?node_id=659584>.
parrot changes rapidly, and rakudo as well; if you have issues with the latest point release, be sure to try svn-latest of parrot/rakudo.
